SANmp FAQ


Yes, each license of SANmp/iSANmp includes a USB dongle, which is required to be installed directly into each computer where you will use the software. The USB dongle is a portable license, meaning, you can easily transfer it if you replace an old computer or if, for example, you switch from a Windows computer to a Mac computer.
The globalSAN iSCSI Initiator is a separate product and is not included with SANmp/iSANmp; it is sold and licensed separately.

Not at all. We understand that you may not have a dedicated IT staff, so we focus on keeping things easy to setup, use and maintain….

SANmp requires no server or metadata controller, which makes it a perfect choice for companies without an IT department. Simply install SANmp and within minutes you can be safely sharing all of your Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage.

Yes. If you only want to share iSCSI, then iSANmp is what you need.

iSANmp is identical to SANmp — easy to use SAN sharing software, same great features, no extra servers, no metadata networks, compatible with Final Cut Pro, Avid, Adobe, Pro Tools, Mac and PC, most arrays, etc. — but it’s iSCSI-only (instead of Fibre Channel and iSCSI) and at half the price it’s the perfect solution for budget minded, small to medium sized businesses and do-it-yourselfers.

You can download and try SANmp/iSANmp and install it on an unlimited number of workstations.

We recommend you explore the Support Center for more information. You can also learn more from the installed user guides.
